Long Week

Some weeks in the semester always seem longer than others.  This week, I had 3 tests in addition to 3 projects and a paper due.  Also, since my dad was away, my mom and I wanted to do lots of “girly” things together 🙂 a la chick flicks, dining out at our favorite places and staying up late watching tv.  It was a great week but SO tiring!  Our younger dog Darcy, who is a total daddy’s girl, was particularly testy this week!  Here’s a cute video of her being “punished” 😛

I have been keeping up with my 10k training- I am on week 3!  I typically do around 2.5 miles every other day.  I like to run outside here since the weather has been cooler, but it looks like I will be back in the gym this week!

I am SO thankful that I bought new running shoes.  I always seemed to buy the same ones over and over, but I switched it up and bought Sauconys after I read that they were good for neutral cushioning and wider feet.  They have been a dream to run in: no more tingling toes or shin pain!

My Shoes!

I graduated from week one of the smoothie challenge.  Yesterday and today’s smoothie was almond butter and “jelly.”

At first, I wasn’t too into it, but the more I drank it, the more I liked it!  Tomorrow’s smoothie is pear based and I am SO looking forward to it 🙂


This week SHOULD be an easy one for me!  I also have an appointment for my passport on Friday!  We are looking into taking a cruise/island vacation in May/June to celebrate my brother’s (and my) graduation.  Afterwards, mom and I have a shopping date in Palm Beach Gardens.  Can’t wait!
